Since neutron decay rate is proportional to the Cabibbo-Kobayashi-Maskawa
(CKM) matrix element squared, |[V.
The new result for the neutron lifetime can be used for the unitarity test of Cabibbo-Kobayashi-Maskawa
Particle decay data indicate that the Cabibbo-Kobayashi-Maskawa
matrix may deviate from unitarity (presently at the 2.

The other important goal of measuring the neutron lifetime with improved accuracy is to test unitarity of the Cabibbo-Kobayashi-Maskawa

v]), test Cabibbo-Kobayashi-Maskawa
(CKM) unitarity, limit scalar and tensor currents, and search for Charged Vector Current (CVC) violation.
As the CP (or T) violating phase of the Cabibbo-Kobayashi-Maskawa
(CKM) matrix is associated with the sector of heavy quarks, in the field of low energy physics the expected mechanism of T-violation is connected with meson exchange between nucleons .
At present, one main issue in neutron decay work is the unitarity of Cabibbo-Kobayashi-Maskawa
The experiments address important issues in nuclear, particle, and astrophysics such as unitarity of the Cabibbo-Kobayashi-Maskawa
matrix, time-reversal invariance, the weak interaction between nucleons, nuclear three-body forces, and the abundance of [.
Precision measurements of these parameters can test the unitarity of the Cabibbo-Kobayashi-Maskawa
(CKM) matrix, provide limits on weak scalar and tensor currents, right-handed currents, conserved vector current (CVC) violation and second-class currents, and other possible new physics beyond the Standard Model of particle physics.
